* Note that with Polydor releases some stamper detail is expressed as:
V = an upside down triangle in all stamped matrix detail for the Track Records and Polydor Records pressings while V is expressed as such.
% = a diamond

^ = a triangle


As with the previous albums we get wonderful variations on not only the covers but how this was presented. While no known mono recording exists of this double LP we do get the tracks appearing as either "fold down" mono or true mono on various pressings. The album initially was pressed in such a way that the tracks could be played in the order that they were intended. Record one had sides A and D while record two contained B and C sides. So back in 1968 you could load your stacker on the record player and play two consecutive sides.

Also see studio based releases.

Barclay released this title, 25 October 1968.

The following two pressings are identical in every way, visually. Except when we compare the matrix dead wax detail and the fine print of the inner gatefold sleeve. One copy I bought from issue [this first one] while the second was acquired as a gift from a friend on his passing and I think he bought this on issue. The difference in DW detail is clear indicating that they are from different UK pressing plants and using different stampers. The text detail differs when we look at the printers who supplied the covers. This first one has a cover printed and made by Howards Printers (Slough) Limited, England while the latter of the pair has printed and made by E.J. Day Group, London and Bedford.

Given the units shipped over the years it is no surprise just how many plants were involved in pressing this double LP. Here are a number of other Reprise “tan” label matrix numbers, these are from the internet discussion forums and publications and from friends. I cannot verify these as being totally accurate as in they may well have other detail not recorded.
